John Gerrard: Animated Scene
Austria Schlebrugge.Editor, 2009
This catalogue was published to accompany John Gerrard Animated Scene, a collateral project at the 53rd Venice Biennale International Art Exhibition in 2009
The project presented three new works as large-scale projections. Each work introduces a virtual scene – astonishingly real but entirely and meticulously fabricated by the artist and his studio between 2007-9 – based on documentation of the vast and desolate agri-industrial landscapes of the American Great Plains, scattered with grain silos, battery pig production units and small remote towns.
